Two dead, one detained in Westchester shooting
A Westchester shooting that left two men dead and another in custody was being investigated Friday as a possible robbery or burglary, Los Angeles police said.
The shooting occurred in the 5700 block of West Centinela Avenue around 6 p.m. Thursday. One man was pronounced dead at the scene and another at a hospital.
Police detained a third man for questioning but no arrests have been made, said Officer Tenesha Dobine.
KTLA News reported intruders may have been trying to rob a resident at an apartment complex. They are currently looking for the possible victim, who was likely shot.
"We're trying to determine everybody's role right now, and it's just very important that we find this person that was likely injured in the gunfire," he said.
According to the Times' Mapping L.A. database, the Westchester area has experienced 815 property crimes and 69 violent crimes in the last six months.
